Estimation of the spacial variability of carbonic acid stream direction in different hydrological seasons at Lake Baikal

Abstract

The spatial and seasonal variability of the direction of carbonic acid streams in the water-atmosphere system is analyzed based on the results of ship measurements in the pelagial of Lake Baikal in May–June and September of 2008. The main stream of CO2 in May–June is directed to the atmosphere, and its runoff to the water surface is observed in September. A correlation between the biomass of phito- and pico-plankton and the content of CO2 and biogenic elements in the lake water is revealed. It is shown that biota specific change is a key factor determining the seasonal variability of carbonic acid stream direction.
